Golden Wall

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: Sarah Cotterill

To encourage the use of circle time in the classroom at the beginning of a new term and to reinforce them throughout the school year, use a Golden Wall.

Have your golden rules displayed prominently in the classroom and dedicate a wall space to them. With a roll of gold paper, stick the paper to the wall from top to bottom.

Everytime a child adheres to a golden rule, or your golden rule focus for that week, ask the child to get a sticky label, write their name and stcik to the Golden Wall. At the end of a half term cut out all the labels from the wall and put in a hat/ box. The name pulled out wins a reward for sticking to the Golden Rules.

Obviously the more times a child's name is on the wall, the more chance they have of winning that reward!

This works wonders and reallly gets the children to adhere to the Golden Rules...well, most of the time!
